Tightrope

Long day’s journey into night.

Few movie stars are as willing to expose the cracks in their character’s psyches as Clint Eastwood.

Detective Wes Block is a good cop, but maybe a bad human being — haunted by dark thoughts, way too comfortable living in a twisted world.

Pursuing a serial killer with a similar bent, he has to overcome his fears and prejudices to save his own soul.

Eastwood can do the stuff with guns and growls in his sleep.

Here, once again, he proves he can go far deeper, even when it doesn’t make him look all that great.
